Marx Navarone Giant Playset Landing Craft

Marx tried to think of everything when it came to designing their military playsest from bunkers to batbed wire, men and machines they had just about everything you could need to wage a battle. To get those men and machines to the beach required a landing craft of some sort and Marx came through - sort of. This craft was most definitely a small one only able to haul Marx's Jeep or howitzer - not Jeep and howitzer - and a handful of men. Larger craft were needed to get their tanks and haftracks to the beachhead. In addition, because Marx chose to have the landing craft come with wheels, regardless of what was loaded in its bay would have had one helluva time getting out due to that huge bump on the deck required to accomodate the wheelset. The craft measures 6" (15.24cm) L x 2 1/4" (5.71cm) W x 1 1/2" (3.81cm) H. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina
